My friend just told me about this book, assuming I'd already heard about it, so I was rather amazed when search on this on here only produced one mention by Kidsmum... This being Jane Austen fan fiction, in a way! Longbourn by Jo Baker From Amazon: The servants of the Bennett estate manage their own set of dramas in this vivid re-imagining of Pride and Prejudice. While the marriage prospects of the Bennett girls preoccupy the family upstairs, downstairs the housekeeper Mrs. Hill has her hands full managing the staff that keeps Longbourn running smoothly: the young housemaids, Sarah and Polly; the butler, Mr. Hill; and the mysterious new footman, James Smith, who bears a secret connection to Longbourn. [...] A must-read for fans of Austen, this literary tribute also stands on its own as a captivating love story. Personally I'm quite intrigued, but I'm not sure if I would buy a copy... I think I would borrow it from the library if it was available. Anyone else interested?
